Former West Virginia lawmaker Derrick Evans was sentenced to three months in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to storming the Capitol on January 6 and live-streaming it on Facebook. CBS News congressional correspondent Scott MacFarlane reports that the defense and the judge said that January 6 is one of those moments when you’ll always remember where you were when it occurred, like 9/11 or the Challenger explosion:
Defense and judge said Jan 6 will be a “you’ll always know where you were.. when it happened” moment
Like 9/11 and Challenger disaster

I know where I was on 9/11 and both shuttle disasters; I have no idea where I was Jan 6.

I honestly don't have a clue where I was. I can remember what the exact time was when I heard about 9/11 and The Challenger explosion.

In any case, the January 6 select committee is doing its best to make people care about January 6, but Politico’s Betsy Woodruff Swan says two Democratic members of Congress have told her that “nobody gives a bleep about January 6.”

Look at the way the anchorman goes into defensive mode with crossed arms when he doesn't want to hear what she has to say.

Smart Democrats are probably focusing on what their constituents actually care about, like gas prices and inflation.
